We are in the midst of the holiday season, and this week’s stretch aims to help those who will be sitting and traveling for extended periods of time.
The Supported Backbend over Pilates Ball stretch works the hip muscles, the front of the body and the arms. To perform this stretch you will need a 55 cm Pilates ball. Please skip this week’s stretch if you have any back injuries.
How to perform:
*Do not disengage the abdominal muscles while in this position because it is not good for the low back. You do not want to look like the “no” photo.
